Storyline

This movie starts with three men arrested for disorderly conduct at a dance. After they are released, they take a train trip, vent their continuing anger on a young Arab, and kill the man by forcing him out of a window on the speeding train. Their crime is witnessed by Isabelle (Christine Pascal) and reported to the police, enabling commissioner Couturier (Roger Hanin) to find the killers. The major problem now is to prevent a race riot when right-wing extremists falsely accuse some Arabs of reprehensible actions and the townspeople gather to demonstrate at the prison.

Heavy-handed
2 September 2003 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

I was about eleven when this movie was released and it was annouced as a great piece of "educational" cinema. After seeing it again on TV, I must say that it shows its age. The story is very manichean and flat, the characters one-dimensional at best. All french people are ugly, stupid racists, except the jewish police inspector, played by director Roger Hanin himself. All the arabs are nice, racism is just born from the sheer evil of the french. Hanin was never a very subtle actor -nor director- but here he really surpasses himself. Instead of delivering an enlightening sociological piece, he just turns up with a mediocre, preachy politically correct (in the worse sense) comic book. Bleah !
